I am a long time Mac fan and former graphic designer who until recently had been using a 1st generation iPad as my "main computer" - i.e., I had sold both Macs and decided to take a much needed rest from standard upgrade, tech fever. While I no longer work as a designer I found myself needing a slightly more robust system than what the iPad had to offer in order to get my digital life in order - photos, music, contacts, etc. So I sold my iPad and got a base 2011 MacBook Air 11". Things have been great for the past few months, but a stop by the Apple store had me drooling over the new iPad and honestly I realize that I miss the joy of using it for most basic daily tasks - web browsing, email, apps, etc. So I'm wondering if you would keep my current set up: MacBook Air and ATV, or sell both and switch to Mac Mini as hub, htpc and occasional heavy-lifting + plus new iPad for general use? The Plex interface looks pretty nice to replace ATV (any experience / feedback with Mac Mini hooked up to HDTV as main machine?) and as nice as the MacBook Air is, I'm afraid it will show it's age sooner than later with the 2GB RAM and the battery life is really a step-backward after 10+ hours with an iPad. Appreciate the thoughts. Thanks.
